Made to Last by Melissa Tagg

Wow, what a fun, inspiring and hope filled novel this first one by Melissa Tagg is!  It is the perfect combination of love, romance, secrets, charm and suspense. 

The characters were warm and witty  and lovable with just the right amount of imperfections.  The back of the book (below in the About the Book section) says all you need to know before reading the book.  The three main characters, Randi, Blaze and Matthew made me want to finish the book in one sitting, unfortunately life called.  The story line draws the reader in and pulls at your heartstrings.  

About the Book:

Miranda Woodruff has it all. At least, that’s how it looks when she’s starring in her homebuilding television show, From the Ground Up. So when her network begins to talk about making cuts, she’ll do anything to boost ratings and save her show–even if it means pretending to be married to a man who’s definitely not the fiance who ran out on her three years ago.
When a handsome reporter starts shadowing Miranda’s every move, all his digging into her personal life brings him a little too close to the truth–and to her. Can the girl whose entire identity is wrapped up in her on-screen persona finally find the nerve to set the record straight? And if she does, will the life she’s built come crashing down just as she’s found a love to last?
